I live in DC and if anyone wants to try an X-20 they're welcome to try mine. It's got a slotted headstock and I have no idea if or how that might affect tone.

Default Amicus in NW Connecticut

I originally posted looking for an Emerald Amicus to try. I purchased a used one from a forum member (8/29/22) and now I have one. If you are nearby NW Connecticut and you would like to try it please let me know.

I saw this post and thought I'd pass it along...

Is there anyone in MN with a Jumbo Emerald who would be willing to let my friend hold their instrument for a few minutes to see if it is comfortable for him?

Default Any Emerald Balor bass in Philly metro area?

Just bumping this up since it's been a few months. Anyone in the Philly metro area with an Emerald Balor bass, who would let me check it out? Thanks.

OP here. I think this thread has the power to help answer the #1 question about carbon fiber guitars: Where can I try one out? I hope that members will continue to post wants and availability regarding carbon fiber guitars. I'd like to say that after this week, I'll have an Emerald X20-12, an Amicus and an X20 that I'd be happy to let somebody audition. I live west of Charlottesville, VA at the foot of the Blue Ridge Mountains...
